It's been a couple of weeks since I last posted here. This is due to a couple of reasons:
1. I have restricted myself to cooking things that I know how to do, and haven't had any disasters (well, except for today, when I managed to cremate a dozen chipolatas under the grill)
2. It's Christmas! My partner reads this blog (and has both reminded me of disasters that I'd forgotten and prompted me to update occasionally), so she has made sure that all Christmas meals have been cooked properly, by cooking them herself!
She allowed me to help with the Christmas Day dinner, by cooking roast potatoes. I like my roast potatoes cooked in a specific way, with their sharp edges scrumbly. I think I have explained before in this blog about what "scrumbly" means when defining roast potatoes, so I won't do so again (unless anyone comments that they don't understand). My partner's parents were staying with us for a few days, and the single negative comment made by them regarding their meals while they were with us was "the potatoes were burnt". So, over Christmas, I have a 100% disaster-rate for my cooking, whilst having lots of wonderful food!
